My TBird just updated to V115.2.2 32bit Supernova.  Congratulations.  Now I don't get any new emails from all 3 of my accounts.

Nice Work!

I get new messages when I launch thunderbird but I just discovered that the original menu item for get new messages was replaced with an icon. It's a stupid icon that looks like a cloud with a down arrow under it. I discovered what it was quite by accident along with the way to not show the + message button.

While I am in here let me point out another issue I don't like. I have several email addresses in use and, as a personal preference, I keep them collapsed BUT every time I re-launch thunderbird, it automatically re-expands all the folders. Why? I did not ask for this and I don't want it.

And what happened to the dropdown that allowed me to select just *one* account to check messages from?

I accidentally found that - look at the mushroom shaped cloud upper left of the thunderbird screen. it's in that drop-down. Stupid icon to use actually.


I see the button, but it seems to check all accounts, it doesn't have a separate drop-down to select just one account to check, like in the old Thunderbird?

Now solved, see below.

No get email for one account only all?

Ah, right click. That's intuitive then 🤔
